Affordable Insurance Credentialing Services-Cost Efficiency
Given the lengthy, tedious nature of Affordable Insurance Credentialing Services the question that most physicians and medical practitioners are left with is if there is such a thing as Insurance Credentialing. Most of the cost incurred during the Insurance Credentialing is directly related to the time that physicians spend in the process.
The typical duration of the entire process is around four months. During these four months, the medical practice has to go through a variety of steps to get the credentialing process right. Frankly, it varies according to various factors.
The Affordable Insurance Credentialing Services may vary based on:
· Current Credentialing Service
· The number of physicians needed to be added.
· How quickly you grow your practice.
· Changes in insurance contracts
· Additional services rendered from the credentialing service provider.
One way to estimate the Affordable Insurance Credentialing Services cost in calculating the time a physician would spend on the actual credentialing process. On average, that would be 43 minutes per day.
Now, if we assume that a physician works on a $100/hr, pay, that’s approximately $20000/year in credentialing work per physician. This is excluding any paperwork; of course, you lose more money if you lose relevant documents.
In hindsight, you are spending way more than $20000/year. Insurance Credentialing cost way less when outsourced to a third party like Denmaar.
